Contoversial far-right party leader intends to visit the Faroes – ‘I do not think that everyone should be allowed to live in the Faroe Islands,’ leader argues

Rasmus Paludan, the leader of Stram Kurs (Hard Line), has told Faroese newspaper Sosialurin that he intends to visit the Faroe Islands in the immediate aftermath of the Danish Parliamentary elections.

Rasmus Paludan and his party, which was founded in 2017, represent strong views on Islam and non-western immigration. Paludan is opposed to non-Western immigration and Islam’s presence in Denmark. He is well-known for his numerous happenings and political demonstrations, often in areas with many Muslim immigrants.

Paludan has pointed out in an interview with Sosialurin that he does not think that everyone should be allowed to live in the Faroe Islands.

“A lot of Faroe Islanders have told me that they understand very well why I am fighting to let Danes be Danes, because they also wish that Faroe Islanders should be allowed to be Faroe Islanders. I do not think that everyone should be allowed to live in the Faroe Islanders, but I first and foremost want Faroese people in the Faroe Islands,” Paludan noted.

The elections to the Danish Parliament take place on June 5.
